DELPHINES, THE: “Panic” b/w “Uptown Lover”: 7”

Nov 13, 2013

Little bitty guitars doing a rapid-fire ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding inside my skull like mice with jackhammers, vocals that sound like they’re coming out of the mouth of a Strawberry Shortcake® doll without pupils, and a drummer who left his cymbals in the gig bag out by the dumpster and couldn’t care less about retrieving them. Although “Panic” is clearly labeled parenthetically as the “single,” it’s the also-helpfully-denoted “demo,” “Uptown Lover,” that had me doing a double-take ((on the completely unexpected line “I’m a sex-crazed dope fiend!”, no less)). I think the word for which we’re all striving here is “keen!” BEST SONG: “Uptown Lover” BEST SONG TITLE: “Panic” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Recorded on Guy Fawkes’ Night ((uncredited))!
